Little Blog seeks closure July 5, 2007

Little Blog does not believe in being in a relationship with more than one male at a time. Her male best friend until now has been M, also 5-years old. It appears he is no longer her male best friend. The reasons are shrouded in mystery.

No one has had the opportunity to get a word in edgeways to quiz Little Blog while she comments on the weather, the state of the nation, the state of the school playground and the state of the garden in winter, not to mention the state of the cartoons on TV, the state of health of the family pets, and the state of the United States of America.

Once again, it is dinner time. Little Blog suddenly pauses in her running commentary.

“Mommy?”

“Yes, Little Blog?”

“Is an ex-boyfriend somebody who was your boyfriend but then you moved on because you were tired of that one and you wanted a new one?”

“Yes, Little Blog.”

“Well then, M is my new ex-boyfriend.”

The mystery is solved. However, Little Blog’s career in relationship counselling may need to be reconsidered.

I’ve been reading all the blogs so far, and “little blog” is such a smart 5 year old. she sounds like an absolute pleasure to be around! I dont need a picture to say she must be soooo cute! when i came upon this blog, i was a little disturbed, why do we think its OK that our children at the age of 5 say they have Ex-boyfriends? I was wondering how you deal with the situation, just curious, you can e-mail me if you would like, im on facebook also, i got your site from the group a place for moms.

You’re right, Natasha, Little Blog is wonderful to have around – after all, who needs canned entertainment? That’s what inspired us to start the blog.
As far as the boyfriend situation is concerned, we don’t make an issue of it. Our feeling is that, if we react strongly, it becomes something serious and confusing, instead of the pure and innocent relationship it really represents. We make it clear that she can have more than one friend who is a boy, and that everybody makes new friends all the time, and that it’s not something to worry about. If she asks a straight question, we try to be as honest as possible with our answers, in an age-appropriate context.
